2:12am
you about the benefit associated with this and give you a brief background and then talk a little bit about the port retail leasing port policy that allows us to proceed on this and so i'm hear here to request the approval of the first amendment as read by the commissioner secretary. this is for an extension of the andre bow din least [spelling?] located in the octogon building there in fisherman's whof and they are offering to extend it in exchange for capital improvements and return 50,000 per year com additional renne and improve the visitor experience at the who have and take advantage of the new plaza that we just completed and pier
2:13am
prom iniad and [spelling?] and they are essential to the positive experience of the whof is the improving of the bathrooms and the background of least in december 2010 the port staff came to the commission to request approval for a seven-year least with andre bow dean backto renovate the octogon building and that was approved here by the commission and then they proceeded ahead and invested over $350,000 into that facility and really improving the functionality of it and it was an area that allowed visit to sit and enjoy out door, indoor enclosed area of the elements and in addition, to
2:14am
that, they they were it really improved the sales to the facility and so we went to the last twee month reporting period. they were able to generated one .5 million mld into this facility and that trans late to one sny thousand dollars of rent to the port and that is a portion of it through the base rent and then they genre almost $97,000 of additional percent anal rent by making this investment so, they are now proposing to do the same, if you will and what they are asking for is an additional steenings to help recould you please that investment. so they made an investment, they want to make an additional investment. they have been a good partner here of the port and so for that , they came back and requested a longer term extension, we felt that to be fair and consistent with what
2:15am
had been approved previously, we went -- they asked for a five-year extension, we came and backed it down to a two-year extension to make it a seven year term and so if this is approved they would have a seven year term to recoup the investment that they would like too make and we have site the port retail investment policy under your staffing report under which you can make an exception to the bidding retail leasing opportunities under the following conditions the tenants is in good standing so bow dean is [spelling?] so they have consistently reporting their obligations in a timely manner and reporting all of their duties under the lead and there has been no issue with them in terms of least obligation they have a good community partner. number 210 inapt is committed to making a
2:16am
significant invest in the leasehold which will benefit of the port. well we have seen that happen before and they are doing the same a $350,000 investment we consider that significant. they are taking an under utilized piece of the -- if you look at it, it's an octogon so we have h i ask so eight sides and this they are taking the least used sign and put it in a new dinings and beverage service and so we think that is significant and there will be for that, then there is going to be generating roughly $350,000 of additional revenue to the port. so $350,000 investment and $350,000 potential return and no rent credit or rent abatement is being offend. so, number three,
2:17am
the benefits of the direct negotiations out weight the competitive bidding well we think there are significant public benefit to this so we are improving our visit visitor experience, we also have they are going to commit to keeping the public rest rooms even, and clean and supervised which, is essential to a positive visitor experience in the whof and so with that i kindly request your approval. thank you ask i have a motion? >> motion to accept second. >> is there any public comment on this item? commissioner any questions or comments? seeing none, all in favor? >> aye resolution 1294 has been approved. >> tim nine d is to request to
2:18am
enter into expwhreurve with barbecue of llc., the most-who issued for 2012 for a retail restaurant least and develop of the restaurant site. >> commissioners good afternoon i'll be brief i'm here asking your permission to engage in exclusive negotiations with the most qualified respondent to the rfp request for proposal for the operation and renovation site located at terry france soy and the qualified restaurant operators who had who would be able to operate the restaurant and renovate the restaurant and provide the highest return to the port of san francisco and in the rfp we set no monthly
2:19am
represent but instead proposed that the submittals included a proposed monthly rent. we did also annual adjustments we did require a minimum of seven% of all gross sales be included. the construction period in which no rent is paid, may be may have been plopsed the minimum least term would into the exceed 15 years however we were open to respondents proposing option extensions. the again the port's objective was to select the most qualified respondent with the ability of finances design to construct and operate the restaurant on the site we received four proposals the first were both barbecues of s f and s f california tribes attach
2:20am
and walk-in brews san francisco it was determines that the rockship bruce was not -- to the proposal and the summary is in the different areas of scoring. again, the i have included a summary of the scoring the written proposals and the interviews we chose to interview 33 of the respondent as a result of the scoring and review by the selection committee port staff is requesting and recommending that you authorize or the port staff to negotiate with bows barbecue and bows meets the compatibility for a restaurant operator and boast has demonstratedded the restaurant development process which, is
2:21am
key in working with the port. bows was named many' wards rnlts having @s, top restaurant barbecue 12 and san francisco restaurant named bows one of the top restaurants in the bay area for years and sunset magazine named bows one of the top ten best bar could yous in the west of 2012 what is the concept. family style restaurant, open plan, covered patio,s jazz and blues at night, barbecue, and let me see ... by approvalling this, we are not approving a leasehold for bows all you are delegating the authority to sit down with bows and negotiate for 60 days and hopefully arrive at an
2:22am
equitable least between the port and bows barbecue. neck steps next steps if you indeed authorize me if negotiate we anticipate that could take a month to put the least together and we would be back to you with the term and conditions of that least for your approval and following that, we would anticipate going to the board of supervisors for approval and a commencement date optimistically pep; february, march -- very optimistic. and i'm happy to answer any of your questions i'm requesting your authorization to negotiate. >> thank you is there any public comment on this item? first of all, i would like to say i appreciate the
2:23am
hard work here with the due dates and with the fact that we had four companies that put in and you chose this and so i'm pleased and i can definitely support this justice has been done. >> thank you just one question. could you tell us what the other proposals were? sure. well the first one rock and brews the most interesting part of that is i can't even similar mondays of quiz kkiss was one of the partners and that is as much as i can say it was not a responsive in -- i won't go into detail. stripes, tavern restaurant, first i'll add and i'll backup and say that the three respondents were very good if we had three opportunities, i would love to be able to do three deals with all of these so they were all high quality respondents and the teams were
2:24am
all very high quality. stripes tavern, kind of the difference is they are proposing sick thousand month in minimum represent and seven% of grows sales, capital investment of 750 to 850,000 compare that to s f rent being 5,000 a month, three% annual scalelation seven% of gross sales a rent credit of $340,000. and an investment ... is scalelation seven% of gross sales a one-time rent credit of $40,000 only which was in the rfp and that was for a credit
2:25am
because there is insufficient electricity at the premises so other than that, no rent credits. so boast is the highest rent paying per month, if you look at, we have setup a financial model. i don't know if you have received the spread sheet comparing apples to apples and they will pay us a million dollars over the 15 year term more than the second person. so i hope i'm answering your question. >> you did i really appreciate it and my commissioner adams said you definitely did your due diligence. diligence. >> yeah and i intrusioned bow and michael lat teen here hi. .... >> stand up i can't see you. hi did you bring me samples? .
2:26am
>> [laughter]. okay. just on a final note and i'll make it very brief. bows stood out as a brand name the other restaurant but bows is something a little more special and so in ever area the proposal, the scoring the interview, they came out on top. >> my brother lives there and so i have already been hearing good things. >> okay all in favor? aye resident luxe 125 has been approved. >> item ten a presentation and decide on the port of san francisco blue green way project good answering commissioners david with planning and development and i am to take this opportunity to give the commission and the

2:28am
